I would like to send my love and support in your time of loss. But we can draw strength and solace from God. He can provide guidance and peace to make it through difficult times. The Bible scriptures can bring us peace and courage. At Revelation 21:4 it states: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Our Creator has promised that these things will take place. It may be hard to imagine a time of this promise becoming reality however, with faith and endurance all things are possible. May God grant your family peace and comfort. One of Jehovah's Witnesses

I am devastated. He was my friend since first grade at North Spray and was one of the kindest people I've ever had the honor of knowing.
